Warne Quick-Detach Ruger Rings

Have a need for quick-detach scope rings on your Ruger No. 1 rifle? Well, Warne has solved your dilemma. These steel Maxima Quick Detach scope rings are rugged, secure, indexable, and worth every penny. Price: $102 (1 inch), $117 (30mm). Warne Scope Mounts

Break Free CLP Precision Shooter Applicator

No fuss, no muss. Put Break Free's outstanding CLP exactly where you want it, in exactly the amount you need. It's like an EpiPen for firearms allergic to fouling. At only 5¼ inches long by 1/2 inch in diameter, it fits anywhere and is there when you need it. Price: $6. Safariland

MTM Tactical Range Box

MTM's Tactical Range Box/Maintenance Center services bolt-action and AR-style rifles and shotguns, and it comes with two adjustable gun forks, an all-new action block insert arm that fits into the magazine well of AR-style rifles, removable top storage box, and a deep-storage maintenance center.

The M1911 Complete Owner's Guide

This little gem from Walt Kuleck covers everything from history to operation to troubleshooting of the 1911 pistol. It even explores ammo types and uses and how to upgrade your personal 1911 if desired. It's a perfect way to wrap up (pun intended) this year's celebration of the platform's 100th birthday. Price: $30. Scott Duff Publications

Caldwell Magnum Rifle Gong

It's too big to be a Christmas stocking stuffer, but Caldwell's Magnum Rifle Gong is sure to please. The 10-inch-diameter, 3/8-inch-thick steel gong withstands repeated shots from all calibers of high-powered rifles and handguns. The unit is portable and easy to set up. Price: $170. Battenfeld Technologies

Crimson Trace Master Series Laser Grip

We love CT handgun laser grips, but some shooters have a beef with them: They're all plastic. So no longer. For a cool $399 you can get a Master Series CT laser grip of G10 material. G10 is an incredibly durable material made of layered, compressed fiberglass impregnated with resin and then baked. It's as tough as it gets. Master Series grips should be arriving at your dealer's by mid-December. Crimson Trace

Diamond D Guide's Choice Holster

A favorite with the editors of Shooting Times, Diamond D's adjustable Guide's Choice chest holster is made with high-quality materials and loving craftsmanship. Available to fit all major semiauto pistols and revolvers, the rig distributes the weight of even the heaviest hunting handgun evenly across the shoulders and puts the gun in the most accessible position. Price: $160. Diamond D Custom Leather

Galco Miami Classic Holster

Originally worn in the early 1970s by officers of the Chicago Police Department, then made famous when worn by Don Johnson in the hit show 'Miami Vice, ' this is perhaps the most famous — and comfortable — shoulder rig available. The show, of course, inspired the holster's current name. Previously it was know as the Original Jackass Rig and was reviewed in Shooting Times as early as the 1970s by Dick Metcalf. Price: $180.

Hornady 8th Edition Loading Manual

The handloading geek in your group needs this. Almost 1,100 pages contain data on handloading with cutting-edge propellants like Superformance, LEVERevolution, Hybrid 100V, Reloder 17, and more. And, of course, Hornady's new bullets — GMX, FTX, DGS — and all the favorites are included. Price: $38. Hornady
